Did You Know?

The actor that does the voice for the Dean of the secret order of dirty joke writers was Marc Alaimo, another actor of Star Trek fame. Marc played the reoccurring role of Gul Ducat on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.See more »
Factual errors: During the "Lead Singer of Asia" cutaway gag, their classic hit song "Heat of the Moment" begins playing. This song featured the band's original lead singer/bassist, John Wetton. But the "lead singer" featured in this cutaway is clearly modeled after his replacement in the band, John Payne, who did not perform on the original recording of the song.See more »

very funny episode, 12 October 2014

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

When Quagmire tells Peter and Joe and about a Dirty joke that Makes Peter wet himself every time he hears it Joe and quagmire have fun pranking Peter into wetting himself by constantly telling him the joke. Eventually Peter, Joe and Quagmire begin to unfold the origin of the joke that leads to two things, One of them is a great Futurama reference and the other is them ending up in Virginia where they find Cleveland and his new family. While Lois and Bonnie stay at Cleveland's with his wife Donna The old gang is reunited once more to find the origin of the joke. This episode is a laugh riot and is truly underrated. While Cleveland was never my favourite character in the show, it is nice to see him return in this episode. The outcome is brilliant and I love the twist that all the dirty jokes in the world are written by some of the smartest people of all time like Stephen Hawking and Warren Buffet. This episode is full of laughs and if you haven't seen it I highly recommend you give it a watch.
